State-owned port operator Pelindo III will spend almost half of its investment amount of $634.4 million on the development of regional ports and the purchase of container cranes in order to ease port congestion. More specifically, the container terminals at Tanjung Emas port in Semarang, Central Java, the Trisakti Port in South Kalimantan, and the Teluk Lamong multi-purpose terminal project near East Java’s hub, Tanjung Perak port, will be expanded. A part of the investment will also be utilised to acquire 2,500 hectares of land in East Java for the construction of a new industrial port.
